Jerry has vast experience in development, leadership with HOA’s, and city planning. He has demonstrated fairness and equity with his decisions and developing in the “right way”.

Jerry draws on his vast experience, his sense of humor and his deep love of people to move projects forward. I have seen him unite our community when there were serious conflicts. He is absolutely honest and he is not self serving. He knows construction and city planning and ways to be responsible for our resources because he cares deeply about taking care of our earth, our community, and our Highland citizens. Jerry would bring business and financial savvy to our city, as well as wise building and land development know-how, a pragmatic attitude and a creative intelligence that is unmatched. Jerry Abbott would be a great asset to our Highland City Council!" - Sallie Poet, 14 year Highland resident and UVU Professor
